French Tour to Lyon

We, the French 5 and IB French B higher level students at IEGS, went on a trip to Lyon situated in the South West of France. The purpose of the trip was to practice our French skills and to experience French culture. In just four days we did a lot of fun things! We stayed at a beautiful apartment, just like the ones in French movies. The sunrise was visible over the rooftops through the kitchen window, and the sunset from the bedroom window.

International Exchange Project Rome-Stockholm 2014 - 2015

One of the aims of the Modern Languages Department at Internationella Engelska Gymnasiet is to create an awareness of cultural differences via languages, which reflect the rich variety of traditions, historical events, evolutions of principles and ideals. Differences stimulate a personal reflection about who we are and how we are. This is why we believe that giving the opportunity to our students to live an intercultural experience can encourage international understanding and the awareness of sharing common values.

Operation Wallacea

Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes. Research is supported by students who join the programme, to strengthen their CV or resume or collect data for a dissertation or thesis. Academics benefit from funding for high quality fieldwork enabling them to publish papers in peer reviewed journals. This model enables the collection of large temporal and spatial datasets used for assessing the effectiveness of conservation management interventions.
